A man and a dog come into a pub. Sounds like a joke, and just maybe it is. Inspector Richard Jury is drawn into a long involved story told to him by a stranger named Harry Johnson in The Old Wine Shades pub. Johnson tells how his friend, Hugh, lost everything at once; his wife, son, and dog. But then nearly a year later the dog came back. The story get stranger and stranger as it goes along.

I hadn't read a Martha Grimes book for years and really enjoyed this one. Don't want to give too much away, but I would probably have given this four stars except for a rather unsatisfying ending.
